DIY Shampoo

                                                Home made Natural Shampoo
1.  Purchase soap flakes :  Ivory or Castille to name a couple.  The main thing is to make sure the soap is mild and gentle.  If you purchase a bar of soap you need to grate it, so you end up with 1/2 cup flakes.

2.  Put a pan on the stove and add water= 1 quart (Spring Water) for pure and natural shampoo.

3.  Get a bowl and put flakes in it.

4.  Boil water, pour over flakes.

5.  Add 1 teaspoon glyercine.

6.  Stir.  The flakes will dissolve, cover and allow to cool.

7.  Add other ingredients,  if you wish to have a certain scent , you can add essential oils, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Orange.  Add 2 to 3 drops of oil once soap mixture is cool.

8.  Store shampoo in a plastic container with a lid.

9.  Wash hair. Remember it may not lather like commercial shampoos, but that doesn't mean it isn't working.
